48% of Spanish households had contracted the pay TV service in the second quarter of 2022, 6% more than in the previous year. Fixed telephony, on the other hand, continued its downward trend, although it continued to be present in 75.8% of Spanish households. This is reflected in the latest data from the CNMC Household Panel, which focuses on the electronic communications services of Spanish households.

The percentage of households that have telephone, internet and pay television services is gradually increasing. In the second quarter of 2022, it reached 40.5%, above the 38.6% obtained a year ago. On the contrary, the percentage of households that only contract telephone services (fixed and/or mobile) decreased to 6.5%.

On the other hand, the average expenditure per household and month on the quadruple package (fixed and mobile telephony, fixed and mobile broadband and fixed access) maintained its downward trend and stood at 45 euro. Average spending per household and month on quintuple packages continued to be around 80 euro.

As regards the type of fixed broadband, fibre continued to grow and was present in 66.7% of Spanish households. ADSL connections were present in 14.6% of homes.

By municipalities, fibre optics was present in at least 62% of homes in municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants. However, in municipalities with a population of less than 5,000 people, fibre was only present in 48.8% of homes.

These results are part of the CNMC Household Panel, a semi-annual survey of households and individuals. The CNMC intends to collect information directly from citizens through surveys and analysis of utility bills. The study is multisectoral in nature and collects data related to the telecommunications, audiovisual, energy, postal and transportation markets, among others. The survey for this wave was conducted in the second quarter of 2022 and included 5,117 households and 8,560 individuals. This tool provides extensive and diverse information, and allows the CNMC to better understand the point of view of consumers.
